Choosing the right Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software is one of the most important business decisions you will make. You’re investing in a solution that solves your most pressing manufacturing problems, so selecting the right one is critical. To help, OptiProERP, leading provider of ERP software for manufacturers and distributors, has come out with an eBook titled, “21st Century ERP Selection Roadmap,” which acts as an advisory for small and mid-sized manufacturers and distributors.
The problem with most ERP platforms today is the layering of so-called ‘new ERP functionality’ onto older 20th century platforms. 21st century ERP delivers industry-specific functionality that is built into the ERP platform. It’s not a generic after the fact add-on. It’s beyond seamless and more than an end-to-end solution. It’s your central business management platform, and the foundation for your growth and success. Available here, this resource provides you with six things manufacturers should consider on their journey to selecting a new ERP solution.
Benefits of Manufacturing ERP
ERP software can pick out the areas where improvements are needed and necessary. As a result, it can enhance the overall effectiveness and efficiency of the organization, especially when it comes to time management. Once the problems have been detected, it’s easier to monitor whether the changes that will be made will be effective or not. It also reduces costs and risks because it streamlines different business processes, which in turn reduces the operational and management costs. Whereas, improved data integrity and financial control reduce overall business risks.
A successful and competent ERP solution uses an integrated centralized database that supports all core processes of a business. This leads to the effortless integration of silo departments and processes within the entire organization. Having seamless integration within an organization allows for greater sharing of ideas, coherent decision-making and improves customer experiences. It also helps with informed (and better) decision making.
